We might oc it, but we wont go for extreme oc. The build looks good, however, my friend want to spend all 1600$ on this build, so he want everything he can get from that 1600$. 1163,67$ is not good enough for him. ^^

If you're paying $1600 for a gaming rig you should be prepared to overclock. Burritobob has a good build but dual 680s on this budget should not really be considered if you don't have monitor or peripherals. I don't recommend cutting corners (cheap case, no SSD) to get something that doesn't make sense to the build.

Here's what I would suggest:

CPU Cooler: Cooler Master Hyper 212 EVO 82.9 CFM Sleeve Bearing CPU Cooler ($34.99 @ Newegg)
Motherboard: ASRock Z77 Extreme4 ATX LGA1155 Motherboard ($144.99 @ Newegg)
Memory: Mushkin Blackline 8GB (2 x 4GB) DDR3-1600 Memory ($54.99 @ Newegg)
Storage: Western Digital Caviar Blue 1TB 3.5" 7200RPM Internal Hard Drive ($84.99 @ Newegg)
Storage: OCZ Vector Series 128GB 2.5" Solid State Disk ($139.99 @ Newegg)
Video Card: EVGA GeForce GTX 670 2GB Video Card ($373.98 @ Newegg)
Case: NZXT Phantom 410 (Gunmetal/Black) ATX Mid Tower Case ($109.98 @ Newegg)
Power Supply: PC Power & Cooling Silencer Mk II 750W 80 PLUS Silver Certified ATX12V / EPS12V Power Supply ($114.98 @ Newegg)
Optical Drive: Lite-On iHAS124-04 DVD/CD Writer ($22.98 @ Newegg)
Operating System: Microsoft Windows 7 Home Premium SP1 (OEM) (64-bit) ($99.99 @ Newegg)
Total: $1411.85
(Prices include shipping, taxes, and discounts when available.)

@g-unit, He said he got a HDD and a copy of Win7 & DVD burner.^^

These are my preference though I see Easytransfer build is super but need some adjustments;
